The Big Picture Thinking IQ Matrix explores how to think more expansively and broadly about the goals and objectives you want to achieve. BIG Picture Thinking expands how you look at the world around you. It’s about not wasting time on irrelevant things that take you no close to your desired outcomes. It instead puts things into perspective, which helps you make the most efficient action possible. Without Big Picture Thinking, you are more likely to make rushed or shortsighted decisions that hinder your progress as you work toward your goals. This map will show you what it takes to think BIG. It will give you permission to go your own way, create your own path and break new ground as you work on pursuing your BIG Picture goals.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Big Picture Thinking mind map.
ADVANTAGES: The first branch of this map explores the advantages of BIG Picture Thinking (BPT). BPT helps bring things into perspective, expands your creativity and the possibilities of what you can see and do. When you adopt the practice of Thinking BIG, you are more focused on what matters and adaptable to changing conditions and circumstances you may face as you work towards the attainment of your goals.
HOW TO: The first of the “how to” branches unlock what it takes to Think BIG. It explores the importance of making time for distraction-free thinking, of setting clear goals, and using mind maps, diagrams, and vision boards to connect the BIG Picture and the small steps that will take you there. The branch also looks at the value of taking into consideration the consequences of your decisions and the impact they have on the BIG Picture.
HOW TO: The second of the “how to” branches delve into problems, challenges, and setbacks you may face and how they connect with the BIG Picture. How you go about solving these problems influences the BIG Picture. To move beyond these problems, you must explore the possibilities, which requires understanding how to make the most of opportunities.
HOW TO: The third of the “how to” branches unlock the final steps to BPT. Here you must be willing to learn from others and your own experiences. Moreover, it’s essential not to get lost in detail, make assumptions, or worry about the small stuff. If you fall into these traps, they will significantly and negatively impact your BPT.
This map provides a roadmap and framework for thinking more broadly and expansively about your goals and objectives. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these concepts and ideas into your subconscious mind.
A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
